Asparagus with pine nuts


1 bunch (about 2 cups) asparagus
hot water
1 tbsp sesame oil or olive oil
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp coarse salt (or 1/4 tsp regular salt)
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp pine nuts lightly toasted *

* I got the pine nuts from Kokopelli's kitchen. Lightly toast it over a medium low heat dry skillet. It will become brown and fragrant, make sure it doesn't burn by shaking the skillet or moving the pine nuts constantly. Remove from skillet and cool.

Blanch the asparagus by putting it in boiling water and leave for a 2 to 5 minutes till it becomes dark green, the time depends on the thickness of the asparagus.

Heat oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic, ginger then add the drained blanched asparagus and stir fry. Add the toasted pine nuts and mix. Serve warm.

Gourmet popcorn



If you want to avoid unnecessary fat and grease, try popping popcorn at home. It is very easy and delicious, and there are so many ways to get creative with it. Kokopelli's has gourmet popcorn available to buy online.

1/4 cup or 2 tbsp gourmet popcorn
1/2 tbsp coconut oil to toss after popping
salt optional

Put 1/4 cup popcorn in a brown bag, fold it on the top (just like a popcorn bag, but without sealing with pins or tape). Microwave for 2 minutes. When popping slows remove bag. The time depends on the microwave.
Toss with healthy coconut oil and salt, if using and serve.

If you like sweet popcorn sprinkle chocolate, coconut and nuts.
